  2. 16 Stone Vintage: 1975 PROM

    March 20, 2014 by 16stone

    Hello everyone, I am sorry to leave you for more than a month without a post. I was busy putting together the most fun party I’ve ever had in my life! My birthday celebration this year had a vintage theme of the 1975 prom. I had so much fun dressing friends and family for this party. I was running out to stores right down to the last hour before the party. Below is footage from this very special night that took place at Tip Top Bar and Grill on March 8th. A very special thank you to Tip Top, DJ Tara, Richard LouissaintJason Minnis, and everyone who attended. Enjoy!

  8. Miss Cannes Festival 1959

    November 10, 2013 by 16stone

    Cecelia Cooper went to France in 1959 and won the title of Miss Cannes Festival with the help of Grace Del Marco agency founder Ophelia DeVore. Cecelia beat out 14 other models of European decent. Ophelia DeVore set out to show the world that Black models had a place in the beauty world. She did just that with this stunning prodigy. The Grace Del Marco agency represented some of my other favorite vintage beauties like Dolores DeVega and Diahann Carroll.

  10. A Very Vintage Halloween…

    November 1, 2013 by 16stone

    I didn’t grow up celebrating Halloween. So now all those years of missing out is manifesting in my adult years. This year, I was especially feeling the Halloween spirit. From Tuesday to Thursday I pretty much let loose. Of course I had to fit my vintage pieces in with my costumes. So much fun!

    Originally a 1980′s Arnold Scaasi dress was tailored to make my zombie clown a hit.

    Wednesday I did all my errands in this disturbing number. My white leather vintage jacket looked like a straight jacket. Vintage beaded Halloween sneakers on my feet too.

    The grand finale on Halloween day was my homemade Dia De Las Muertos costume. From one vintage dress I was able to use the bodice as a shirt,  and the lace skirt into the veil and train.
